    Man I&#8217;ve had a gutful of the crap you read on forums that give people absolute rubbish advice.<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    I&#8217;ve collected a bunch of fantastic advice given and summarised it;<o:p></o:p>
    · Every bike is completely unreliable.<o:p></o:p>
    · No bikes gearbox is good enough.<o:p></o:p>
    · Olive oil makes great engine oil.<o:p></o:p>
    · If you don&#8217;t buy a KTM you must have rocks in your head.<o:p></o:p>
    · You wasting your time going riding on a 250.<o:p></o:p>
    · The average guy will never get anything out of a bike unless he buys the latest race weapon.<o:p></o:p>
    · It can&#8217;t be good enough unless it&#8217;s got the latest specs, even though that was good enough 2 years ago when the last model came out.<o:p></o:p>
    · If you do buy anything out of the ordinary expect to be ridiculed.<o:p></o:p>
    · It&#8217;s best for me, so it must be best for you, or you&#8217;re an idiot.<o:p></o:p>
    · No one should cross the desert unless you&#8217;ve done it before.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I&#8217;ve got some confessions to make, and they must make me the worst bike owner and maintainer there is, I am sorry in advance.<o:p></o:p>
    1. I gerni my bike after ride,
    2. I use CT18 as a cleaning agent,
    3. I use the last engine oil change oil for chain lubricant.<o:p></o:p>
    4. I use a spot tracker when I ride.<o:p></o:p>
    5. I usually get a tyre shop to fit and balance my tyres.<o:p></o:p>
    6. I use petrol to clean my air filters<o:p></o:p>
    If there is some sort of bad bike owners anonymous (BBOA) I should join, please let me know.<o:p></o:p>

    Hey .. slow down or you'll be had for speedin.

    I was going to say maybe he's against mobile devices ..

    hmm .. cleans his bike .. ... time better used drinkin ?

    Think I've used one of them things about 3 times .. basically due to the amount of sh#$ on the thing.. once it was on a commercial site .. 4WD had used it previously .. I had to shovel some of the mud off to get the bike on... :1drink If the bike gets polish more than twice a year something will go wrong.

    Mmmmm.....nice thread title, good gramma, I like the dot points.

    5/10 Rant points.
    7/10 for subject matter
    3/10 for the white font

    All in all good, must try harder next time.
